Facebook, Walmart & Google Execs To Headline Appnation III

We’re less than two weeks away from Appnation III. In fact by this time next week after you’ve chowed down on turkey, gotten run down by shoppers and watched some great college football you’ll be thinking about what you can do to get your mobile and app fix. Well it’s definitely Appnation III.

Appnation III is being held in San Francisco California November 30th and December 1st and just like Appnation II they have an excellent line up for any level developer.

Facebook’s developer guru Doug Purdy is set to keynote on day 1. Many developers will remember Purdy from Facebooks own developer conference earlier this year.
